Well, return of our Bach expert continuing his journey of Bach keyboard music w/ us!:) Yup, not too surprised about his highly anticipated return after his marathon series last year w/ Bach French suite & English Suite! Ok, enough said, please read details below, and I bet you'll fall in love w/ it:
András Schiff returns to complete his survey of Bach‘s keyboard works in two ambitious recitals, co-presented with the San Francisco Symphony. Schiff is celebrated for his concentrated and encyclopedic explorations of major keyboard works and he is particularly acclaimed as a Bach scholar who brings a sharp intellect and technical brilliance to his performances. His first recital features the intricate counterpoints and commanding sonorities of Bach’s complete Partitas. For his second program, Schiff will perform two monumental keyboard works that are rarely paired: Beethoven’s technically demanding Diabelli Variations and Bach’s touchstone Goldberg Variations that inspired much of Beethoven’s late work.
J.S. Bach, Partitas Nos. 1-6
